So after the renovations inside (pics and info to come) our thoughts turned to outside.
Especially as the warmer weather is coming we wanted to make outside more comfortable, nicer and neater.
The boys are always in the backyard either using the skateboard ramp, in the cubby or kicking a ball around.
Along with a dog and rabbit that like to dig holes, the yard was looking a little tired and unloved.
Simon wanted an easier and maintenance free option and as it is his "domain" I let him go with his idea of artificial grass. Although I never thought I would have it in my backyard I have to admit the yard looks neater and is more user friendly (no bindies and holes!) and it looks always looks lovely and green ;)
We are spending more time out there and the "grass" is actually nice and soft and great for the boys to play on. I'm thinking I will eventually get my backyard back in about 15 years(!!!) when everyone is done with skating and won't wreck the grass ;)
Back in your cage Fifi!
Inside looking out
The dog doesn't seem fazed by it and the rabbit is not allowed to roam free on it.
It's working for us for now, we'll see how it goes!!

We used a company located in Botany called The Grassman
The whole yard only took 2 days, the guys were great and cleaned up all their mess.
